Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 170°C.

Using a food processor, blend all the cake ingredients, except the milk, until smooth. Add the milk until a dropping consistency is achieved.

Spoon into 12 cupcake cups.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, then leave to cool.

To make the icing, melt together the chocolate and cream. Cream the butter, icing sugar, chocolate mixture and vanilla until light and fluffy.

Mix in a few drops of the colouring.

Pipe the icing on to the cooled cupcakes and decorate with chocolate hearts, if you like.
